Qin Liwei

Shenzhen Symphony Orchestra will collaborate with young violinist Chen Xi, cellist Qin Liwei and pianist Yuan Fang to perform Beethoven's "Triple Concerto" and Brahms' "Symphony No. 4" in early July. Austrian conductor Walter Weller will wield the baton.

"Triple Concerto" is also known as "Concerto for Violin, Cello, and Piano in C Major, Op. 56." The choice of the three solo instruments effectively makes this a concerto for a piano trio and the only concerto Beethoven ever completed for more than one solo instrument.

Chen Xi

Rising Chinese violinist Chen has been described by music magazine The Strad as "a very bright musician with strong individuality." He was born in Shenyang and, at 17, won the silver medal at the 12th International Tchaikovsky Violin Competition in 2002, a year in which no gold medal was awarded, making him the youngest winner in the history of the competition.

Yuan Fang

Born in Shanghai in 1976, Qin moved to Australia in 1989, and later studied at Melbourne University. Qin won the silver medal in the 1998 Tchaikovsky International Competition in Moscow. Qin has performed extensively throughout Asia, Australia and Europe.

Yuan is a well-known Chinese pianist and the youngest professor at China Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing. Yuan won the highest prize on the Munich International Young Pianist Stage in 2004. In 2008, she graduated from University of Music and Performing Arts Munich.

Weller is currently conductor laureate of the Stuttgart Philharmonic Orchestra and associate director of the Valencia Orchestra. He was born in Vienna, where he first gained renown as a prodigy on the violin. His father was a violinist in the Vienna Philharmonic, and at the age of 17, the young Weller became a member. He remained at this post for 11 years. Afterwards, he has been conductor for various orchestras in Austria, Britain, Spain and Belgium.
